On 30th August 2022, a loco swap is taking place at Aldomirovtsi on LINE 1 west of the Bulgarian capital Sofia. TBD TP (TBD Freight Transports) Class 06 Diesel No. 06-303 has pulled forward from a rake of loaded coal hoppers that it has just tripped in from the Beli-breg open cast mine to allow company Skoda 44-083 to take charge of the consist. The whole operation is being controlled by the chap in blue just visible behind the bush using his mobile phone and an extremely strong natural whistle coupled with a wave of the hand. The Skoda will leave with the latest shipment of coal to the east while 06-303 will return a rake of empty hoppers to the mine leaving Aldomirovtsi in a westerly direction.
